Medact Brighton: Patients Not Passports launch – Standing up for Migrant Healthcare
Thursday 19th March, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Connecting those in Brighton and Hove challenging the hostile environment and fighting for access to healthcare for all. An action planning event to build a strong, collaborative movement across our city. All welcome.
Join us as we bring together people and organisations from across the city who are challenging racism and fighting for access to healthcare for all. We aim to build a collaborative movement that stands in solidarity with marginalised people in our communities and fights the hostile environment in the NHS. As health care workers, activists, migrants and people of Brighton we stand together against the racist charging regulations that prevent people from fulfilling their right to health.
This event will bring together all those working to fight racism and improve access to healthcare across the city. We will hear from the key organisations and individuals doing fantastic work in Brighton and beyond, before breaking up in small groups to make tangible action plans, based on existing our strengths and resources, to see the end of the hostile environment in health in Brighton.
After the workshops please join us to continue the conversation and stay for delicious food provided by the wonderful Jollof Cafe, for a small donation.
Everyone is welcome, whether a seasoned campaigner or someone who is new to activism but is passionate about health justice. The food will be vegan and the venue is wheelchair accessible.
